Donnetta “Lil Bit” Jackson @ Perfect Our Craft Workshop

16836518_1490614360963170_6401935038882879177_o

P.O.C. is meant to educate in more ways than one. Giving you the opportunity to hone your skills while exploring other styles​. Versatility is a key roll in being a dancer because it allows you to play around with different avenues. Imparting knowledge in a specific area that you may have been unfamiliar with. We’ll be bringing you people from our very own community as well as working industry choreographers and dancers. Giving you history, experience, life lessons, and technique in the art form. Toward the end of the workshop we will be engaging in a Q&A. Further enlightening you on the business aspect of dance as well as other necessities you should be aware of. This will be especially helpful for the inquiring minds seeking help on their path to becoming a professional dancer or becoming a better dancer overall.

Zawadi: Official 50th Anniversary Kwanzaa Open Mic

img_739411

On December 26th, SuperGroup, Party Noire, Harold Washington Cultural Center, M.A.D.D. Rhythms and Church on the 9 will be collaborating to bring y’all ZAWADI, the annual and official #Kwanzaa2016 Open Mic.

Now. Because this is the 50th Anniversary, and because 2016 has been a year pulled straight from the depths of a white american horror story, we decided to do something special for you folks.

Featuring spoken word legends Adam Ness and Ayinde Cartman, as well as the ear-gasmic, party rockin’, beat knockin sounds of DJ Rae Chardonnay, and hosted by Chicago’s very own Lawrence Binkey Tolefree (deported from Thailand for one night only!), this is a night going down in Chi’celand History.

Take a second to appreciate the sheer audacity of that BOMB A**, BLACK A** LINE-UP. Honestly, I don’t know where else you’ll be on a random Monday evening besides here. From 6 to 9 at the Harold Washington Cultural Center. Come get this work.
